How many digital subscriptions do you have? Try to count without forgetting anything. This could be a new service that you started to use as a free trial or an old subscription you already forgot about. There are probably some services, subscriptions and apps that you have long forgotten about, but they still charge your bank card a few dollars every month. This can end up costing a significant amount of money each year. In this article, we gathered the most helpful apps to track your payments and trim down your subscriptions.
